Police Rescue Child Stuck In A Toy


20-month-old Luca is nothing short of energetic.

But his misadventure Tuesday night brought him to a standstill.

Soona Choe says, “Its kind of comical if you think about the situation, I call 911 and say “my kid is stuck in a toy” and they’re like what kind of toy? What do you mean?”

The toy is supposed to hold different shaped blocks that go inside these holes but Luca pulled the lid off and climbed inside…That is where he got stuck.

Soona Choe says, “He got in, got wedged in and he couldn’t get out.”

Mom Soona Choe says when she realized Luca couldn’t move. VShe had to call in a professional.

Sergeant Rick Hernandez with the Fort Lee Police Department responded to the call.

Sgt. Rick Hernandez says, “It was a priceless expression on his face. He looked a little bit embarrassed about the situation.

Sgt Hernandez says even though a heavy duty tool was coming.

Sgt. Hernandez says, “That’s been a popular question did we bring in the jaws-of-life. They were on the way, the truck was on the way.”

He decided to use his own sheer strength.

Sgt. Hernandez says, “I asked mom if i could break it, she said i tried, you can give it a shot. I was able to get off the front panel, it cracked.”

Luca was finally free and in the arms of his hero.

Soona Choe says, “I was like thank goodness I was so happy and grateful.”

Sgt. Hernandez says, “It’s one of those calls that you’re happy to be on and leaves you smiling afterwards, it’s always good to be able to help a child.”

Mom says she plans to keep the toy and someday show this picture to her son to remind him of that time he got stuck in a toy.
